me me me me OK it wasn't but stick with that - you don't want them !

I read for someone with the MD recently and got no feedback. It has to be bad - or to read badly - one or the other...



*OK or maybe I am a crap reader sob*

Quite possible. It does have a certain "bargain bin" air about it...

Ha. Well, it's still in my shopping cart, but I haven't bought it yet. And I don't know if I will (oh, my aching REPUTATION!)... but if I need a consolation prize or something, I may punch the "check out" button.

You guys haven't done a very good job of deenabling that Golden Rider. FWIW. Just sayin...

That's right, you heard it here first...it makes the Miss Cleo look very very good.
NO NO NO. It does NOT make Ms. Cleo look good. It's a lovely deck, that is completely unshufflable long skinny bar coasters. But Ms. Cleo? I don't think so!

I really cannot abide her decks. That whole "Abe Lincoln" thing in the wands suit of the Spiral. I mean, WTF? (though there are some other lovely cards..)

Had it. Sold it. YEARS and years ago.

Celestial Tarot! Help!

Pretty horsies http://******************.com/photos/photo/213/81 .

Constellations.

Although what the heck http://******************.com/photos/photo/213/87 has to do with the 8 or Swords escapes me.

But.. pretty!

The Celestial: Hmm. All those animals squatting over the misty stuff - looks like they're performing bodily functions. That rabbit appears to be farting up a storm. The Boxer looks like she's peeing on your favorite sweater while looking right at you. The pretty horse is missing a leg and there's only half a wolf. He looks confused about it, too. And, speaking of the mist, won't you get really tired of seeing it, when it's on every card?

Eugh, I traded it away (& the Spiral too). Something about the art style & those faces is so ... unhealthy & sick-looking. They gave me the creeps.

There are so many thematic correspondences going on that I needed to refer to the booklet with each card & found it impossible to read them directly, intuitively.

The cards are extremely shiny / plasticy & feel horrid.

Hey - this should do it: only some of the constellations work for us in the UK ... many are only visible in the southern hemisphere!

Who has this deck?
http://www.figtreepress.co.uk/TheMysticRubaiyat.htm
can you think of any de-enablements?
They are post card size with plain backs.
75 rather than 78 cards.

See, I'm trying ...
While I'm here, has anyone bought and used this new tarot?
